A lot of great gelati in Italy. But this is one of the best. Very creamy and delicious!! Don't believe the directions or my google map app is wacky. It is in a beautiful square near D&G's Gold restaurant

A gelateria, yes, but a well oiled machine! Some nice summer days you can walk on heads just to have your favorite icecream! And believe me, it is worth waiting.
